Create a CHRoot access to access your service by console

Create a CHRoot access to access your service via console

This type of access creates a user with root privileges (with some limitations) via console or SSH. With this CHRoot user you can perform actions such as a manual migration directly on the service or manage the folders and directories of the web by console. One action you can perform is, for example, to unzip a .zip file of a web site previously uploaded by FTP.

To activate the access we will first go to the Dashboard of the service. In the top search bar of your SWPanel, look for the name of the corresponding service and access it by clicking on its name:
